This is Cemetery Hill. It is located across the lagoon to the east of town on a bluff. It is the newest cemetery in Kotzebue. The rest of the marked graves are a strip of graves from Bison Street to Lagoon between 3rd and 4th Avenues divided among the Friends Church, the Episcopalians, and the Catholics. All Denominations are buried on Cemetery Hill. There are other burial sites in town that are no longer used or marked-one large one near Friends Way north of the old Friend
's Church. Families also take members to be buried at Sadie Creek, about 10 miles south of town along the beach or across the Sound at Sissolik.
